  • O'Connor, Colton David Graham (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Measurements of the electric-to-magnetic ratio of the proton's elastic form factors, GE/GM, have recently been shown to diverge at high momentum transfer, Q2, based on which of two experimental methods is employed. Reanalysis ...
  • Bookatz, Adam Darryl (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    In this thesis we are primarily interested in studying how to suppress errors, perform simulation, and implement logic gates in quantum computation within the context of using Hamiltonian controls. We also study the ...
  • Yurtsev, Evgene (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Through a combination of experiments and modeling, I explored how inactivation of antibiotics by antibiotic-resistant bacteria affects the evolution of antibiotic resistance in two simple microbial communities. First, I ...
  • Zhou, Feng, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The AMS-01 detector measured charged cosmic rays during 10 days on the Space Shuttle Discovery in 1998 and collected 108 events. By identifying 8349 Lithium and 22709 Carbon nuclei from the raw data, this thesis presents ...
  • Frederic, James J. (James Joseph) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997)
  • Cabi, Serkan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this thesis, we are investigating cosmological implications of hidden sector models which involve scalar fields that do not interact with the Standard Model gauge interactions, but couple directly to the Higgs field. ...
  • Jeltema, Tesla Erin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Clusters of galaxies have become an important cosmological tool, yet we do not un-erstand many aspects of their formation and development. In this thesis, I pursue two projects aimed at using clusters to constrain cosmology ...
  • Mezei, Márk (Márk Koppany) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    We devote this thesis to the exploration of how to define the number of degrees of freedom in quantum field theory. Intuitively, the number of degrees of freedom should decrease along the renormalization group (RG) flow, ...
  • Gell-Mann, Murray (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1951)
  • Makhoul, Khaldoun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this dissertation, we present the results of a time-dependent angular analysis of Bs -+ J/,0 decays performed with the use of initial-state flavor tagging. CP violation is observed in this mode through the interference ...
  • Kennedy, Colin (Colin Joseph) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Ultracold atoms in optical lattices are among the most developed platforms of interest for building quantum devices suitable for quantum simulation and quantum computation. Ultracold trapped atoms are advantageous because ...
  • Ocko, Benjamin Mark (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1984)
  • Hill, David Allen, 1927- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1954)
  • Antohi, Paul Bogdan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Trapped cold molecules open the possibility of studying ultracold chemistry and astrophysical processes in laboratory settings. Their rich internal structure also makes them suitable for quantum information manipulation ...
  • Sharma, Rishi, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The nature of cold three-flavor quark matter at the large (but not asymptotic) densities relevant to neutron star phenomenology is not resolved. The gapless CFL phase, which was previously believed to have the lowest free ...
  • Hess, Shelby Kimmel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis comprises three results on quantum algorithms and quantum process tomography. In the first section, I create a tool that uses properties of the quantum general adversary bound to upper bound the query complexity ...
  • Ibanescu, Mihai, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In this thesis, we explore the properties of cylindrical photonic crystal waveguides in which light is confined laterally by the band gap of a cylindrically-layered photonic crystal. We show in particular that axially-uniform ...
  • Zukin, Phillip Gregory (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    N-body simulations have revealed a wealth of information about dark matter halos but their results are largely empirical. Here we attempt to shed light on simulation results by using a combination of analytic and numerical ...
  • Markowitz, Jared (Jared John) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis we present a data-driven neuromuscular model of human walking and its application to prosthesis control. The model is novel in that it leverages tendon elasticity to more accurately predict the metabolic ...
  • Sigalov, Ilya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis we study the D-brane physics in the context of Witten's cubic string field theory. We compute first few terms the low energy effective action for the non-abelian gauge field A, from Witten's action. We show ...
